The Group 2 Queensland Guineas is a 1600m event for all three year old horses and is worth $350,000 in prize money.

Traditionally held at Eagle Farm Racecourse in early June, the mile event is a set weights race which is held on Stradbroke Handicap Day, which is the pinnacle meeting of the annual Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival.

The day has three Group 1 races led by the Stradbroke Handicap, while the Queensland Derby for three-year-olds and JJ Atkins for two-year-olds are the other elite level Brisbane races on the card.

The Queensland Guineas field attracts a line-up of the season’s best three-year-old middle distance gallopers coming off lead-up runs in events like Eagle Farm’s Group 3 Fred Best Classic (1400m) a fortnight earlier.

In 2017 the Queensland Guineas ran at Doomben Racecourse due to the poor track conditions at Eagle Farm Racecourse.

The Queensland Guineas 2019 runs on June 8, 2019.

2019 Queensland Guineas Field

The Queensland Guineas field draws a strong line-up of winter three-year-olds from both local Brisbane stables as well as interstate raiders chasing the riches on offer in the sunshine state. It is a race for gallopers not quite up to the testing distance of the Group 1 Queensland Derby held on the same day and the Fred Best Classic is the best lead-up into the Queensland Guineas field.

The official Queensland Guineas 2019 field and barriers are announced by Racing Queensland the Wednesday of race week and will be published below.

Queensland Guineas History

First raced in 1896 and won by College Cap, the Queensland Guineas was originally an 8 Furlong Principal race until 1973 when it was changed to 1600m. Shortly after in 1979 the race was elevated to Group 3 status until 1988 when it was once again raised to Group Two status. The Queensland Guineas was not held from 1942 to 1945, 1983 or in 1996. The fastest winning time since 1988 was recorded by Sizzling in 2013 with 1 minute 24.3 seconds while the slowest time was 1 minute 43.8 seconds by Insecure in 1998.

In 2013 the Queensland Guineas moved race days, from Stradbroke Handicap Day to Queensland Oaks Day. The race distance was also changed from 1600m to 1400m. For 2017 the Queensland Guineas was contested over 1600m at Doomben Racecourse with the state of the Eagle Farm track deemed unsuitable for racing earlier in the carnival.
